“The Sky is Falling”

The sky is falling.
Keep calling wolf.
Nothing ever accomplished,
Only consumed.
Starvation in the name of
Flourishment begets nourishment,
For the privileged status quo is content.

The sky is falling,
Our priorities following.
Entertainment tonight
Disregards our tomorrows.
A consequence of sorrows,
Repeats and Hollows,
What it means to be human.

The sky is falling.
We check the reflect,
Through the screen,
But don’t believe what we are seein.
Our truth in a notification,
No longer information.
The weight
Will fall on us,
Until we learn to pick our heads up.
